  • Had 3 hours at the hairdresser today, Colour, cut blow dry and straighten. And I feel tired now from doing nothing. My watch beeps 3 times to say I was sitting too long.

    Good morning All from a dull, dry with :sun-clouds: trying to emerge but so far not CP
    Have a good day All :walt: :clover: :rose:

  • Bought a side of salmon yesterday, and stuffed it in the freezer for You Know What…..Am amazed no one else is apparently thinking of that date on our horizon – or if you are, you have taken a vow of silence about it, and are planning it in deepest secrecy. I think if this festival did not exist, we would have to invent one to engage our minds…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. Coffee morning today but first I must clean out the sparrows feeding cage and scoop millions of acer leaves out of the pond. It is looking dull outside but dry.

    • Sounds like quite a civilised day to me, Cilla. I’d like to give my grass a last cut today, but I don’t think it will dry off enough here. Hope today is full of possibilities and congenial conversations over coffee.

      • Coffee morning all day for me at work. when we moved here about 8 years ago, I got to choose my office…..I chose the one with a en suite kitchen :good: :mad:

  • Good morning Clickers, just got a bag packed up as I’m off to Dunboyne later this morning. OH stays there while working in Clonee, so joining him for a night away and visiting friends while there. :good: Have a good day all. :-)

  • Morning clickers :-) a Lidl shopping day today – how exciting is that :confused: I’ve done 26 rows of knitting – 60 to go :good: It’s a bit early to think, so I don’t know what else I might get up to today. Hope you all have a good one :-)

    • Morning Jane, :good: on the knitting, hope you are enjoying it, not so good on the shopping though. I’m escaping the usual shopping today and heading to Dunboyne. :dance: Visiting friends and then staying overnight, costing very little extra for me as OH gets his as expenses while working in Clonee, so rude not to. :cool: A long drive down, but…[Read more]

      • Morning Karen :-) Oh, wow, just looked where Dunboyne and Clonee are – definitely a bit of a long trip down but it sounds like a lovely idea, especially as you can use the spa :good: Have a fab time – why wouldn’t you :rose:

      • Morning Jane. We spotted another Aldi at Loughborough the other day, that makes two, but no Lidl anywhere, I don’t know why. Well done on the knitting, can’t wait to see it. How many stitches for a headband? Have a lovely day, anyway. :-)

        • Morning Cilla :-) Only 20 stitches :good: The shops are weird, aren’t they – no local Aldi here and the one in Skeg is really out of the way. Enjoy your coffee morning :good:

    • Lidl shops may be some of the most congenial places to be just now, since they are blessedly devoid of political pontificating. Silence only broken by the click-clack of knitting needles is a beautiful thing. Enjoy today, Jane.

  • Today 14th of Nov and I cut the lawn, cannot believe it. Been super warm today. Picked up all the leaves that came down and its foggy tonight.

    greetings from a damp and grey south lakes, no gardening of any sort today, too wet. Hope you have better weather and enjoy your day

  • gertie posted an update 1 day, 7 hours ago

    Well, we have :notacloudinsight: with a few :sun-clouds: in CP this morning, so may get outdoors after some de-cluttering [little and often :confused: ] :lol:
    Have a good day all, rain or shine :good: :rose:

    Good morning how’s all a tad wet . A dry spell hitting us next week

  • cilla posted an update 1 day, 10 hours ago

    Good morning all. Yesterday, mum of my little family asked if I had any flowers left in the garden to make two posies with as they were saying goodbye to the babies today. I was so pleased to be able to find a vase full for them and when she and the children came to collect them we had an impromptu tea party round the table :-) So a very sad day…[Read more]

    • Morning Cilla, glad you were able to help with the flowers and the impromptu tea, I bet it helped the mum no end as many people would have shied away, from both ideas. A small part of your garden given with love to help her babies on their finally journey, what a beautiful way to help :rose:

    • Morning Cilla :-) a very sad day indeed for the family but lovely that they came to you for help :rose: The village will always remember them :rose:
      Hope you have a good day – after you appointment at least :-)

    • It says a great deal that the bereaved family felt able to approach you like this, Cilla – and I hope your contribution helped to bring them some closure. I doubt if I could summon the same courage as they are displaying in the circumstances. I’m proud they felt able to turn to you as they did.

    • Lovely Cilla … Gardener :love: :rose:
      Have a good, peaceful day today :love: :rose:

    • A lovely tribute to you that the family came to you to help with their flowers Cilla. Such a terrible time for them and I hope this closure with give them some small comfort. :love:

  • Morning clickers :-) raining – I hope someone has a dry day :fingers-crossed: I think I’ll be alternating between the kitchen and the sofa with a book. My knitting needles arrived yesterday and if the wool comes today, I’ll be able to start my headband. Have a good day all :-)

    • Morning Jane. It is dry here so far. Well done you on the headband…..I hope your tension is better than mine, I have a distinctly wobbly looking end to my scarf :lol: We must swap photos ;-)

    • I just hope you have the right-shaped head to wear a headband. I say this, because I have a drawer-full of headbands that look OK for 5 minutes, but very quickly ease themselves off my head. Am I supposed to anchor them with kirby grips? It has been an enduring disappointment – but don’t let the possibility spoil your day.

    • Good morning Jane :high-five: have fun with the knitting :good: :love: :rose:

    • Sounds like we might need a knitters group? :-)

    It’s really pouring this morning – and that cat of mine is so irritating. He is running backwards and forwards to external doors (which is his normal way of saying ” Open the door and let me out”.) And then he just stands there, and looks out – i.e. until my foot connects gently but forcibly with his rear end.
    It did clear up yesterday as…[Read more]

    • Morning Sheila. One of my previous cats was always convinced that if it was raining at one door, it wouldn’t be at the other – Alfie is obviously the same. ;-) Don’t envy you your choices today, but good luck with them. :good:

    • Morning Sheila :-) raining, not exactly pouring but it does curtail anything interesting to do outside. I’ll probably stew some apples – will have to find some room in the freezer. I’m about to listen to the headlines and then the radio will go off. Try and enjoy the day!

      • Morning Bean. I think you are due for a dry spell soon, according to the weather, I blooming well hope so anyway. Alfie is such a character but mine do the same even with a catflap :lol: I hope your cold is on the wane but de-cluttering must be better than Brexit ;-)

    • Good morning Sheila … will be joining you re the de-cluttering today … had an interesting chat with two second-year med students who came to the house … all part of their training. Was dreading it as we are so cluttered , but the extra careful clearing up in readiness has spurred me on to do more :lol:
      Have a good day, you are spurring me…[Read more]
